- Mathematical Literacy; Higher Order Thinking Ability
This research aims to describe the importance of cultivating mathematical literacy in learning to develop higher-order thinking skills. The study is qualitative research with a descriptive approach. The research instrument in this study was a teacher response questionnaire on the importance of learning mathematical literacy and higher-order thinking skills. The results showed that (1) students’ ability to understand reading in mathematical texts, pictures/diagrams and data tabulation was still lacking. Students still need to be helped to understand reading whether it is in the form of picture text or data tabulation, (2) in the learning process, the teacher has not fully included mathematical literacy content even though mathematical literacy is one of the learning objectives, this is due to the lack of learning media that supports developing literacy. Students’ mathematics, (3) students’ potential if they are accustomed to mathematical literacy activities. Students’ thinking skills will develop because they will be used to analyzing and reasoning when solving problems. However, maximum effort is needed to familiarize literacy activities in learning, (4) the potential of students towards higher-order thinking skills in learning mathematics is still lacking, even though higher-order thinking skills are the demands of 21st-century learning, (5) 21st-century need to develop skills students’ high-level thinking if the learning process is familiarized with mathematical literacy because mathematical literacy will help students to practice their reasoning skills and their ability to analyze. Students can hone their higher-order thinking skills in mathematical literacy learning activities.
